Lucifer - My Brother's Keeper TV review

A search for Ella‘s (Aimee Garcia) missing older brother (Rey Valentin) turns into a murder investigation when Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) finds the sketchy businessman the brother was meeting with the night before dead in his office. Also missing with the brother are a stash of stolen diamonds which Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) discover their missing diamond expert was working to illegally clean at the time of the murder. While Lucifer turns out to be wrong about the identity of the murderer, much to Ella’s relief, it turns out the Devil knows a blackened soul when he sees one (although that nugget of truth he chooses to keep to himself).

“That was the most cooperate arch-criminal I’ve ever met.”

Lucifer - 'Til Death Do Us Part television review

Between attempts of trying to kill Pierce (Tom Welling), Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and the the immortal help Chloe (Lauren German) with the murder of a teacher found in a wood-chipper on an otherwise quiet suburban street. Learning that the woman once cooked street drugs turns the investigation onto a Korean gang leader (Steve Suh), but despite Lucifer convincing the man to confess to various crimes he isn’t their killer. Unfortunately for Pierce, this leads to one of the show’s more unconventional undercover assignments as the neighborhood’s new couple. Annoying his new “husband” doesn’t get Lucifer any closer to finding a way to kill him, but it does serve as the beginning of a friendship between the pair. Oh, and it also catches them a killer.

Lucifer - All About Her television review

While temporarily stymied as to Pierce‘s (Tom Welling) real motives for insinuating himself into his life, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) works to regain Chloe‘s (Lauren German) trust in helping with the murder of a local surfer declaring the day “Detective Day.” Lucifer may struggle with finding a way to properly butter-up his partner, and initially proves less useful to the case than Detective Douche (Kevin Alejandro) going undercover with the prime suspects, but he will get some answers from Pierce who comes clean about Lucifer’s abduction, his interest in Chloe, and what he truly desires.

Lucifer - City of Angels? television review

Set before the show’s First Season, “City of Angels?” offers a glimpse at the various series regulars in the early days of Lucifer‘s (Tom Ellis) arrival on Earth long before he had become a nightclub owner or began his partnership with Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Breaking up the current arc, it seems an odd place to insert such an episode that doesn’t (at least initially) add much to the season’s bigger storylines. That said, there’s plenty to enjoy here including the more acrimonious relationship between Lucifer and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and the angel’s naivete at human existence.

Lucifer - The Sinnerman television review

“The Sinnerman” plays on four themes of Lucifer‘s Third Season. The first, which gives the episode its name, involves the Sinnerman (Kevin Carroll) upping his game by murdering those whom Lucifer (Tom Ellis) has given favors to, and temporary kidnapping Lucifer (for a purpose that seems to support an alternate identity for out season’s big bad), eventually leading to the criminal’s capture and face-to-face with the Devil himself. Is this really the Sinnerman, or has the real villain yet to show his face? Tied into this storyline is the growing sexual tension between Decker (Lauren German) and Pierce (Tom Welling), which even Lucifer begins to pick up on as the episode comes to a close.
